I did an official remix for the wonderful tune “1993” by German duo 2raumwohnung. I’m very happy with it and can’t wait for your comments.

Yesterday I attended the Berlin premiere of a new movie after a book by Element Of Crime singer Sven Regener. It’s a comedy set in the German Techno scene of the 90s. Marmion’s 1993 classic “Schöneberg” is part of the soundtrack.
German electronic pop duo 2raumwohung aka Inga Humpe and Tommi Eckart just released their 8th studio album Nacht und Tag. The opening track “1993” also carries some inspiration from “Schöneberg”
Little did Mijk van Dijk and Marcos López know back in 1992 that they would only one year later release an EP with a track called Schöneberg which would stand as a classic of Techno music even decades later. In 1992 Mijk had just released his first EPs and in conjunction with Cosmic Baby produced the ground-breaking mix compilation Tranceformed From Beyond on MFS Records, often called “the first Trance compilation in history”. Soon-to-become Marmion partner Marcos López hosted a radio show on East German youth radio station DT64 and invited Mijk to introduce the compilation and talk about his music. Thanks to DJ Little M aka Mike Dub from Dresden who recorded the show back then on analogue tape and 2 decades later uploaded it on Mixcloud, let me give you this historical piece of Techno radio journalism.

At the end of 1991, East-German youth radio DT64 did a 24-hour-radio show called “The Night Of The DJs”, hosted by DT64s Techno anchor people Marusha and Marcos Lòpez. Alec Empire of Atari Teenage Riot and me would often hang together, copying safety backups of our latest productions on DAT tapes (we had only one DAT Recorder each) or just listen to music together with Hanin.For the Night of the DJs we wanted to do something different. We decided to do a jam session with our drum machines and acid synths in the DT64 studios. Starting with a sample from Flash Gordon, we lost ourselves in modulation. Strange to listen to this now, but nevertheless a historic recording at the radio station in the same building where I soon would start my first radio show House Arrest on Rockradio B.
